    would prefer metal hand crank
    I check Craigslist and e bay in our area and Goodwill auctions daily.
    Can't find the kind I want at a price I'm willing to pay.
    I've bought 7 in the last month but can't find my red one!
    Just thought someone on here might have 1, although if someone does I understand not wanting to part with it.
    If ya see one let know!!!!
    Thanks, Penny

    Try shopgoodwill.com This is an online thrift shop and they have just about anything you may want. You place bids like you would on ebay.

    Don't you love it!!! That's where I have bought several of mine from. But haven't found a red one like I want there yet.
    Thanks for the suggestion though I truly appreciate it!

    Went to site, they said I was not a member, so I applied. They said it might take up to 72 hours to hear back from them.
    Thank you so much for your help!

    I love SewItsForSale. I got a Bernina foot, a Bernina machine carrying case, an out-of-print pattern, books, a straight stitch throat plate, and more there all in brand new condition at considerable savings. One (bad apple) seller sent presser feet in a plain letter envelope. Of course the plastic feet broke and she refused to refund me anything. But I reprted her and since it was not the first problem with her, she was banned from selling. The only problem is the constant temptation...

    I added this to the VSMS virtual forum so more folks will see it. I know exactly what your looking for and there was one here on CL for next to nothing but I do not collect the toy machines so I let it go. But I hit estate sales and lots of garage sales so I might find one for you on the cheap.

    I have a red metal sew machine, handle turns by hand, given to me when I was six so I would leave my mother's electric machine alone. Loved thelittle machine but still wanted to use hers and I did. I will be 80 soon so you know this is far from new although it does look like it. Also have a wood machine and my DD electric machine. Not really interested in selling although no one in my family cares anything about them except me. Just wanted you to know they are out there somewhere. Out of curiousity what do they sell for?

    I looked on Ebay who had several toy mkachines and at reasonable prices. Also checked out Singer Featherweights, some way overpriced. Read about the new featherweight with 66 stitches which could really interest me had I the extra money to purchase from AllBrands. I have the Brother fancy everything but prefer to use a Janome 2007(?). Bought it to carry to sewing groups as it was lightweight and I dearly love it. That machine at Bonanza.com is really tough looking, nobody loved it.

    Did you just try googling red toy sewing machine? That sometimes shows sites with machines for sale that are the sites that have been mentioned already.
